Rising Strong™ is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.

Manifesto of the Brave and Brokenhearted

 

There is no greater threat to the critics, cynics, and fear mongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise. 

With skinned knees and bruised hearts we choose owning our stories of struggle over hiding,

over hustling, over pretending. 

When we deny our stories they define us. 

When we run from struggle we are never free. 

So we turn toward truth and look at it in the eye. 

We will not be characters in our stories. Not villains. Not victims. Not even heroes.

We are the authors of our lives.

We write our own daring endings.

We craft love from heartbreak. Compassion from shame. Grace from disappointment. Courage from failure.

Showing up is our power.

Story is our way home.

Truth is our song.

We are the brave and brokenhearted. 

We are rising strong

Workshops/Classes:

 

Spend 8 hours (workshop) or 16 hours (class) exploring how to live bravely by showing up in the arenas of your life and relationships. Here we will learn how to recognize our core values, increase curiosity and practice owning our story. Rising Strong™ will guide you to becoming the best and most authentic version of yourself.

Retreats:
 

Gather friends, colleagues, co-workers, family members or faith community members to create a safe place to explore different arenas where you want to "show up, be seen and live brave." Using material based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, we will work with the needs of your group to design an experience to support your needs and renew the hearts of those who attend. 

Rising Strong™ Intensive: 

 

In this 2-3 day 'deep dive' we explore topics like vulnerability, courage, values, shame resiliency, identity and connection .  We follow the Rising Strong™ curriculum developed by Dr. Brené Brown.  We will learn with and from each other, create sacred ground where our stories are honored and where you can explore personally the messages you are living out.
